TESTIMONIALS from former HoopSeen staffers

“My decision to work with HoopSeen.com was the best decision I have made in my young career. As a small college basketball player, I knew wholeheartedly that I wanted to break into the coaching ranks but I was not sure how. My coaching contacts were minimal, but I knew that I would do whatever it took to make my dream a reality…There is no price that can be put on the things that I have learned while working at HoopSeen. Not to mention the various contacts that I have made through HoopSeen. This is a no-brainer for anybody looking to break into the industry. People not only leave HoopSeen with the knowledge to excel in their field, but they leave with jobs!” - Jalen Butler, Georgia Southwestern assistant coach 

“The HoopSeen experience completely enhance me as a person, in my career, as well as prepared me for the crazy industry of college basketball. Hosting some of the biggest events in the nation put me in the same room with some of the biggest names in College basketball. From the hands I have shaken, to coaches I helped, the players I witness perform, and stars we help get recognized. No job fair in the country can simulate this atmosphere…In my role at Radford, I am in charge of scheduling, program communication, camp director, supervise managers, travel, team logistics, and more. In other words, it is my job to make sure everyone is where they are supposed to be at all time, along with putting out fires and addressing any need or desire of the head coach at all cost. As an Assistant Tournament Director, I was responsible for nearly the same things. This role with HoopSeen made me more than prepared to work as an Ops.” - Junard Hartley, Radford Director of Basketball Operations 

“Working for HoopSeen was a completely invaluable experience for me. When I joined their team in Spring 2014, the biggest things that stood out was the quality of people you work with. Justin Young, Eric Eleton, and Mike Eddy are phenomenal people to work alongside. They empower you to really find your own voice in evaluating players, networking, and assisting in running events. Without a doubt, my 15 months with HoopSeen was certainly beneficial when I was hired to work on an SEC staff. HoopSeen allows you to stay in the game and see players more frequently than many college coaches are ever could in the offseason. HoopSeen is the gold standard for high school and grassroots basketball in the state of Georgia and potentially the entire Southeast. I would work for them again without ever giving it a second thought.” - Kory Keys, Ole Miss Graduate Assistant
